This all reminds me of something I got a couple of years ago.

 A friend of mine worked for Penguin until very recently as a systems
analyst working on the mainframe computer.  I didn't know him because
of the computing stuff but because he is an angler.... a rather famous
angler in the world of British fishing.  He sent me an e-mail with a
massive list (Cc) of very well known people's e-mail addresses.  A lot
of tv stars such as Nigella Lawson  :-)))))  Yes, it was a mistake.

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
